Authentic coasts, authentic country

Freedom and authentic experiences – that’s a vacation in Nordseeland Dithmarschen Forget the stress. The flat countryside – such clear views you see into tomorrow – and the irresistibly down-to-earth nature of Dithmarsch locals have a unique charm. Immerse yourself in the Dithmarsch way of life and spend an unforgettable holiday here.

With a visit to the harbor city of Brunsbüttel and its sluices, for example Freight and cruise ships alike sail in through the through Kiel Canal, and watching the sluices maneuver with minute precision is quite a show.

This is where the estuary of the Elbe opens into the North Sea, and visitors can watch massive ships slowly drift away into the horizon. By following the ships a little further along the embankment, the maritime influence of the North Sea becomes more and more visible, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Wadden Sea soon comes into view.

Dithmarsch’s interior also has a lot to offer, like Burg, also known as “the Pearl of the West Coast” with its forest museum, popular boat rides, and the impressive ramparts of Bökelnburg.

These sites can be combined with activities like a bicycle tour along the Kiel Canal, for example.

Remember the local greeting Dithmarschen: “Moin, Moin!”
